German gaining more interest

The TCU Horned Frogs have targeted a couple of highly touted quarterbacks early on in the process for 2013. But a new name is now emerging and the Frogs are trying to determine if they've discovered a sleeper in the Houston area. caught up with the Cypress-Woods star Nate German to get the latest on his recruitment and increased interest from TCU.

"Coach Williamson came by my school and asked for tape on me" said German. "He watched it then got in touch with my coach and told him that they were interested in me. I called Coach Williamson and he said that he really liked my film. I'm pretty excited that TCU is showing interest in me".

Although German has yet to receive an offer, programs such as Texas Tech, Rice, Kansas and Oklahoma State have started showing interest. TCU joins that group and German says he's heading to Ft. Worth to see what the Frogs are all about.

"I can't wait to get up there and see what it's like" he said. "They want to see me throw in front of Coach Burns so he can see me up close. I'll be going to TCU's junior day so I'm really excited."

The 6'2 195 pound German says a few things stand out to him when it comes to choosing a school. While there are many factors that go in to making a decision of this magnitude, German says it's pretty simple.

"I really want to go somewhere where I feel needed," he said. "I want to go somewhere that I can make an impact. It doesn't have to be close but it has to be a place my parents like too. The main things are that they have good academics and a good program."

With German taking the reins of the Cy-Woods offense full time in 2012, he's expected to receive more attention. One thing that he's comfortable with though is his team's offense and German says the similarities between the Cy-Woods offense and the TCU offense is a positive going forward.

"Coach Williamson told me that TCU's offense was a lot like ours" said German. "They throw the ball around a lot, but they run it well too. They also run some zone read stuff and really open it up. I'm excited to see what they look like."
